Maxim did some tough negotiating with Standoff starr Raquel Alessi (hammering out a compromise has never been so sexy).

You play FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit member Lia Mathers on the TV drama Standoff. Do you like being in intense situations?
I love action. Anything physical, I’m into. I want to push the edge with whatever I do. I’ve done so many different sports. I’ve broken things. I’ve gotten stitches. I don’t care—I just go for it. My character on the show is a computer techie, so she doesn’t get out of the office much. If I had my choice, I’d be running around with a gun and totally be that tomboy chick.

You don’t look like the average keyboard jockey…
Everyone says that! I don’t look like a lot of things people think I am. Some people tell me I’m unapproachable and intimidating. I think, If you only knew how goofy I am.
